My wife travelled both ways but I wanted to enjoy the fresh air and exercise and so did the riverwalk one way. We salute the passionate conductors. Great commentary with historic and amusing tales. Also loved both the interior and the exterior of the trolley....More

My wife and I enjoyed the all-too brief trolley ride and the local history shared along the way. Just a shame that it was so short but the conductors did a good job of sharing stories about what we were seeing.

We loved this. It is an authentic 130 year old trolley complete with the conductor, motorman, and reversing seats. It’s a relaxing cruise down the Astoria waterfront that takes an hour round trip, so don’t be in a hurry if you want the full experience....More

Love this ride. Very educational ,learning about the waterfront area and surrounding area of the city of Astoria. Fantastic price to ride $1.00 for one way, round trip $2.00.Very comfortable ride taken all along the waterfront. Well worth it!

Tried this out since admission for a single, round-trip ride is only $1 per person. The fact that it’s historic makes this pretty special, but I knocked off a star for a few reasons. 1. It really depends on who your tour guide is -...More

We got an all day pass but got off after a short bit because it was beyond standing room!! It took longer to get on and off than it did to walk. Cute but not worth the wait.

The trolley runs most of the way along the waterfront between midday and 6pm. $1 for one way,$2 for all day rides, real bargain. I am sure it,s manned by volunteer staff, if I,m correct well done for that. We walked all the way to...More

For a dollar you can hear a narrated history while you ride along the waterfront. The whole journey takes about an hour but you can get off at the many stops. For 2 dollars you can ride all day and hop on, hop off.

We rode the Astoria Riverfront Trolley today, and had a blast! We went all the way along the riverfront, and back again for one dollar! The volunteers tell the history of Astoria through stories and jokes about the old buildings. It is a wonderful way...More

I suggest you look online at the city's website or call for updated information for the time period you wish to visit. Due to the cars being constructed out of wood, they DO NOT run in inclement weather.

We looked the trolley up online and did not use an APP. We enjoyed just walking through town and driving to the Lavender farms east of town.

I believe one conductor said it's about an hour round trip. Only I don't think it goes 'round. It goes out to one end then reverses and goes back the way it came. It has cool seat-backs that flip or ratchet into the other... More
